    Watsons bay - Doyle fish and chips

    November 4, 2016 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    The Doyle family first opened their doors in Watsons Bay in 1885. Since then and for over 5 generations, the Doyle family have been proudly serving Australian Seafood.

    We were told about this gem of a place in Sydney but found it completely unplanned on our way from Bondi Beach to Manly.

    And we found it just in time as we both were starving after taking 2 wrong busses to get to Watsons bay, it took an hour longer than planned.

    What a treat snacking on good fish and chips while waiting for the ferry.

    Watson Bay

    May 6, 2016 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 18 °C

    We worden ook deze ochtend weer getrakteerd op prachtig weer in Sydney. Maar het lukt ons in eerste instantie niet echt om de deur uit te komen. Pas na de lunch gaan we op pad. We lopen weer richting de waterkant bij het Opera House. We doen een kop koffie mét goddelijke witte chocolade- en frambozentaart bij het Lindt Café waar in december 2014 een gijzeling heeft plaatsgevonden. Gisteravond hebben we een documentaire hierover gekeken. Aparte ervaring. We wandelen door naar de Ferry Terminal en kopen kaartjes voor de Ferry naar Watson Bay. We varen op hoge snelheid via wat stops naar het laatste stukje vasteland voordat de oceaan begint. Onderweg krijgen we een mooie rondvaart door de enorme baai waarin Sydney ligt. We lopen tussen de luxe appartementen door naar de uitkijkpunten op de heuvel. Prachtig stukje Sydney. Als we de Ferry terug pakken, gaat de zon al bijna onder. Een schitterende oranje bol kleur de wolken en licht de stad bijzonder fraai uit. Wat een zeldzaam mooie zonsondergang!Read more

    Tasman sea

    January 18 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    Friday was another scorcher of a day, and Derek had a pile of marking to do, so we took the ferry to the end of the Harbour - about a 40 minute ride on a fast catamaran. Watson's Bay is on a tiny strip of peninsula, so from the Sudney harbour side it's only a 5-minute walk across the land to the Tasman Sea on the other side. Bit rough, thpugh, and no easy way down to the water, so I wasn't able to add it to my 'paddled in' list.

    We found a shady table at an old-fashioned milk bar with carved wooden doors and a beaten copper counter. Derek worked, I read, and we both worked our way through the soda flavours.

    We'd been told that Watson is the place for chips, so we got a box to eat in the park. Excellent chips, but we were horrified to discover they charge extra - $1.20! - for ketchup or vinegar (and the vinegar is clear, not malt). Very impressed by the politeness of the gulls though - they don't mug people for chips, just stand around looking hopeful.

    Back in Sydney we found they were setting up a Chinese night market in the road behind our hotel. Had a quick look before we headed off for dinner - and were glad we did,, becaise by the time we got back it was *heaving*. Just enough of a clear patch to take a photo of what may be Sydney's prettiest tourist information kiosk, which was all lit up for the evening.
